*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna invites applications for a doctoral candidate position in the areas of geometric representation theory, combinatorics and categorification. The position is planned for a period of three years. Preferred starting date is the first half of 2019 and can be negotiated.

The position is funded by the FWF Stand-Alone project "Macdonald polynomials and related structures in geometry".
The main topics of the project are:

1) Categorifications of the proof of the shuffle conjecture
2) Affine and double affine Hecke algebras, elliptic Hall algebras, A_{q,t} algebra and their representations
3) Skein algebras and representations of quantum groups
4) Homological knot invariants
5) Cohomology of affine Springer fibers, Higgs moduli spaces and character varieties
6) Various versions of Hilbert schemes

Students interested in writing their PhD on one or more of the above mentioned topics are invited to apply.In case of questions, please contact:

Ass.-Prof. Dr. Anton Mellit
